I moved to New Zealand from the Isle of Man in Great Britain just over a year ago. I teach at a secondary school.
Having worn footwear, just like everyone else in Britain, my whole life I was a bit shocked to find so many Kiwis barefoot.
Even at school all children run the cross country barefoot. Amazing! It got me thinking and although I am not tough enough yet I have started to not wear traditional training shoes.
I have been a little overweight for a few years and have recently lost 30lbs in weight. I have developed an interest in bodyweight training and do a little kettlebells.
